2011 Annual Meeting of YEEC

Greetings Everyone!

The 2011 Annual Meeting is here and I hope you can come and join us this Tuesday, Jan. 11, 2011, at 7pm in the York Public Library.

We will review 2010 accomplishments, review the chairman’s report, treasurer’s report and webmaster’s report (read document here) and we will discuss our goals for 2011.

We will also vote on approving the slate of officers for this coming year. They are as follows:

1. Chairman, Eric Hopkins
2. Vice-Chairman, Wayne Boardman
3. Secretary, Paul Kittel
4. Business Liason, Paul McGowan
5. Treasurer: Vacant

Kirk Ronaldson has served as our treasurer for the last 2 years, and is ready to hand the reins over to someone else. If you have a head for numbers, and would like the serve please let me know at the meeting. The job has a very minimal time commitment – mostly making deposits and writing expense checks, and filing the monthly statements.

A couple of quick notes:

1. It looks like I will be making a presentation on PACE to the Selectmen on Monday Feb 14th with the hopes of getting on the May ballot. Stay tuned for more details

2. On February 8th, we will not meet at the York Library like normal, instead we will join with the KEYS area energy committees again. This time at Frisbee in Kittery. It will be a potluck dinner. A discussion of how to best use the KEYS regional grant will be the main topic of discussion.

3. Stephen Thomas from Kennebunk is organizing a new Renewable Energy Initiative similar to successful efforts in New Hampshire. From his press release:

The YCREI has a threefold mission: (1) to reduce energy consumption; (2) to increase the number of renewable energy installations in the County and provide both discounts and expert cooperative labor for those installations, and (3) build a coalition of consumers, organizations, and businesses, all working toward improved energy efficiency practices.

Ok, that’s all folks. Hope to see you there!
